Remote DS Procedures

Beginning the week of April 4, through the end of Spring Quarter, we will offer in-person services for those student-facing services four days a week – Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays – from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Virtual services will continue to be available for students who choose such services or cannot make it to campus.

In response to COVID-19 and our collective commitment to prioritize the health and safety of our students, staff, and faculty at North, most classes are to be delivered online or in alternative formats for the duration of Summer and Fall quarters.

During this time, students will have limited access to on-site services. As a result, some services will not be available or will be offered in different ways, in accordance with local, state, and national guidelines.

Testing

All exams will be administered remotely, unless otherwise specified.

Faculty are to work directly with students receiving testing accommodations to ensure this adjustment is adhered to and provided, as specified in their Letter of Accommodation (LOA). Arrangements will be coordinated with the specific student and adjusted by faculty, as needed. If you and your instructor determine taking your exam on campus is needed, you may schedule your accommodated exams by:

  • Emailing your exam scheduling form to ds@seattlecolleges.edu at least five (5) school days before the exam if approved to utilize on-campus testing in the Student Learning Center (SLC).
    *Requests submitted later than 5 school days may not be able to be accommodated.
  • Upon receiving your form, our office will coordinate your exam needs with your instructor and the Student Learning Center. Please make sure to closely monitor your email for any time sensitive emails that we may send to you.

Spring 2022 Testing Hours: The Student Learning Center (SLC) is able to proctor exams (approved through our office) during these times:

  • Mondays and Wednesdays: 10:15am – 4:45pm
  • Tuesdays and Thursdays: 10:15am – 2:45pm

Submitting Documentation

All medical and academic documentation must be submitted to Disability Services electronically. Please email such information to ds@seattlecolleges.edu.

Access Planning Meeting

To receive services, students are required to meet with the DS Director to conduct an Access Planning Meeting (APM) to discuss the ways in which a student’s documented disability impacts their academic performance and to identify appropriate accommodations and/or auxiliary aids.

At this time, all APMs are conducted remotely through Zoom. Once your documentation and New Student Access Planning Packet have been submitted, please contact DS to schedule an Access Planning Meeting with the DS Director. Appointments can be made by either calling the DS office at 206.934.3697 or emailing the DS office at ds@seattlecolleges.edu.
